Promising to remove more hairs in a single pass, the Emjoi Emagine has gained a reputation for being one of the fastest epilators on the market. Equipped with a massive 72 tweezers, the AP-18 boasts the highest amount of tweezers of any epilator on the market. If you’re looking for a device that will help you to remove more hair in less time, then make sure to keep reading for my full review of the Emjoi AP-18.
The Emjoi AP-18 Emagine is a fast, corded epilator that comes with 72 tweezer heads, promising to remove more hair from the root in a single pass. Each tweezer head is made up of a fixed middle disc, with two discs either side that open and close to gently to remove hair as small as 0.5mm.
Dual Opposed Heads
Another great feature that sets this model apart is the dual opposed heads that help to keep the skin stretched and provide a gentler epilation experience. In order to cover more surface area, the dual heads have been staggered to increase performance in larger areas such as leg and arms. In between the two barrels, the middle lifting fingers help to lift the hair and guide it into the tweezers. The result is the smoothest, silkiest skin possible with results that will last up to 4 weeks.
Full Body Hair Removal
With the Emjoi Emagine you can achieve professional results in the comfort of your own home. Its ergonomic design fits comfortably in the hand and being a corded epilator you never need to worry about it running out of charge. The device comes with two speeds and is gentle enough to be used anywhere on the body. It performs well on larger areas such as legs and arms but can also be used on more sensitive areas such as underarms, bikini line and face. The Emjoi AP-18 is also the first epilator to offer Silver Ion Technology, which helps to protect against bacterial infections.
Epilators are known to hurt the first few times they are used, but with a little time and patience, your body will relax and get used to the discomfort The Emjoi AP-18 dual opposed heads help to make epilation more comfortable by keeping the skin taut, helping to reduce pain and irritation.
Easy to clean
Another great feature of this model is that the head can be easily removed which makes cleaning a breeze. Simply brush out the hair with the included cleaning brush and rinse under warm water.
Tip: Make sure the tweezer head is completely dry before reattaching to the unit.
Emjoi Emagine Vs Other Epilators
The Emjoi AP-18 is one of the fastest epilators on the market and gains a lot of points for its speed and performance. However, there are a few drawbacks to this epilator that I will quickly mention here. This model can only be used when it’s plugged into power, which means that it can only be used on dry skin. The upside to this is that you don’t have to worry about it running out of charge, while you’re in the middle of a treatment. If you’re looking for a cordless epilator that can be used in the wet, you might prefer the Braun Silk-Epil 9.
Although this epilator is suitable for use on the legs, body and face, there are no additional caps included with the device, which make it harder to maneuver in smaller areas. To use it on your face, Emjoi recommends using the device so that only one of the rotating heads comes in contact with your face. If you’re new to epilating you might find this a bit daunting, so I would definitely consider getting a separate facial epilator for the task.
Another feature that I’d like to see in this model is a built in light, but it’s definitely not a deal breaker.
